It’s strange how over time beauty and such things change to a culture, but some things don’t change. It is almost like we need to have an ideal in order to face the reality and dream about that ideal.
I am not saying that we should not dream, but to focus on the ideal (that is not real) is simply a way to lead to an unhappy life.
We are never satisfied with who we are and what we have, because life these days presents itself as perfect via media.
And the tool….
It allows this to happen….
Life is not like magazine covers, its never perfect and never works out “just as planned”. Yet for some reason we always expect it to. I don’t really want to refer to such a thing as average, since average is only there for those who don’t try for what they really want.
So rather let’s say the onlookers and the activators.
People can activate what is already inside of them and get into life and do things. Or they could simply look at those that do.
I am not comfortable with this being the culture ruling state we are in….
Yet for the most part, that is what we expect at the top. We think that the president’s and pop stars and film stars and musicians and the wealthy…….etc…..
all don’t suffer and deal with bad things.
It is mostly because we never hear about the traumas other face. I heard a statement today from a public speaker (a well known one) that “everyone wants to back a winner”.
May be true, but not everybody can win. Sometimes you are going to be the loser and what then? Will no one back you?
I have a particular disgust for pretentious people. they come across as “plastic”. They never have anything wrong with them and always seem together. I keep hanging around waiting for the bomb to drop…..
I prefer to hangout with the flawed and failing because they are trying and more honest. I too want to be successful, but not in a way where I need to discard the broken and the “losers” because they can “do nothing” for me. I was also there at some point and barring a few steps I could be there too.
I prefer real authentic people. They are not afraid to share there faux pas
I know we need something to work towards, but please let’s not make it photoshopped non realities. they are not real and quite frankly they never will be….
